Houston Texans

The loss to Carolina might have been a wake-up call, and it will be good for the Texans to play again quickly on Thursday night in Indianapolis, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Gary Kubiak is concerned about Neil Rackers’ recent misses, says McClain.

Jeremy Shockey is clueless about the Texans’ patriotism, says McClain. McClain's never seen a team do so much for the military.

Indianapolis Colts

After a 13-game losing streak, the Colts are now looking to win a second game in a row, says Mike Chappell.

Donald Brown is breaking out, the Colts lined up with Mike Murphy’s numerical formula and Bill Polian wants young playmakers, says Phil Richards.

Nate Dunlevy of 18to88.com has crunched the numbers and says if the Colts are 2-14 and tied with St. Louis and/or Minnesota for the NFL’s worst record, Indy can’t lose the tiebreaker for the No. 1 pick.

Bartending will be in high demand for Indianapolis’ Super Bowl, says Dana Hunsinger Benbow.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Even fellow players on the defense don’t always know who’s lining up in the defensive backfield for the Jaguars at this point, writes Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

Late on this one, but it’s significant: Shahid Khan said he’s willing to pay what it takes to lure the right guy to Jacksonville as the Jaguars’ next coach, says Vito Stellino of the Times-Union.

Tennessee Titans

As long as Matt Hasselbeck is healthy, he’ll remain the starter, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Chris Johnson came out of the Colts’ game with an injured ankle but it won’t keep him out of the lineup, says Wyatt.
